NEW YORK — The Broadway League announced Monday that all 41 Broadway theatres in New York City are extending their mask and vaccine requirements through April 30, 2022.

All audience members ages 12 and up are required to have been vaccinated at least 14 days before the date of their performance with their second dose of a two dose COVID-19 vaccine or with a single dose of an approved single dose COVID-19 vaccine.

Masks are required inside the theater except while actively eating or drinking in designated areas.

Starting January 29, 2022 Broadway will also require full vaccinations for children ages 5 -11 years old for all performances in accordance with New York City’s Key to NYC Guidelines. For those under the age of five, they must be accompanied by a vaccinated adult and show proof of a negative PCR test taken by a medical provider within 72 hours of the performance, or show proof of a negative rapid antigen test taken within six hours of the performance.

International guests are still required to have two doses of any combination of an FDA or WHO approved COVID-19 vaccine.

The extension of this policy comes as some off-Broadway theaters are choosing to go one step further. The Metropolitan Opera, The Public Theater and Playwrights Horizons are all requiring booster shots of the vaccine for all audience members (for those eligible in accordance with CDC guidelines) taking effect later this month.

Charlotte St. Martin, President of The Broadway League said in a press release, “We’re proud to continue setting the gold standard of COVID health protocols in all our Broadway theatres in New York. Our theatres and world class shows are open for business, ready to welcome and enrapture our audiences, as we’ve done every day for the past five months. Come join us!”

The Broadway League also announced Monday that they will continue their "Buy With Confidence" program which allows for flexible exchanges and refunds.
